Hi, I am currently incubating eggs for the first time. today is day 23. I have 13 eggs in the incubator and one hatched yesterday (day 22) - this chick is still in incubator, I saw a few other eggs moving around last night but still none have hatched this morning. I candled them before lockdown on day 18 and they all seemed fine, I could see them moving around inside the egg. The temp has been constant and the humidity has been between 65-70% as well. should I just keep waiting?

Hi and welcome to BYC. I'd say that there is little else that you can do except wait for another 2-3 days. Did you count the day 1 from their second day in the incubator, or the first?

If your temps dropped a little throughout incubation, that could cause them to take longer to reach hatching stage. Just give it time, it's sounding good to me.
